beskeptical asks a good question (IMO) in Bird flu: Time to panic? (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=36912)

It's something I struggle with each time, and I was wondering if there was an easier way.
looking at the post# link at the top of each post, you will see "p=" which will get you to that post, and "postcount=" which is the sequence within the thread.

I usually manually edit this to create the link.
http : // www .bautforum.com/showthread .php ?p=651777 #p=651777 (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?p=651777#p=651777)(single post with rest of the thread)
or
http : // www .bautforum.com/showthread .php ?p=651777 (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?p=651777)(single post by itself)

Also, cut and paste usually formats it for me, so I have to play with (usually go to preview) it to get it to what I want (I usually have nested URL tags in the process)

I used to edit a URL into proper form, but found a slightly easier way. I got this:

http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?p=651901#post651901

by reading this thread, clicking on the article "#1" link to see it displayed by itself on the page, and then using the link in the upper right corner "Thread:". Going there, or getting the URL from that link's properties, will yield the article displayed in the context of the thread.

Thanks; I never noticed that thread link on the single post page.
(actually; once I saw the single post, I said, this is worthless without the rest of the thread)
It' not a direct route, but quick enough.
I still like to annotate the link, so I guess I will still need to edit the URL=

Check out your Posting Rules, bellow the reply box.
[IMG ] must be set to On. :eh:

I go to that site, click on a smiley and select "Copy image location." Then I come here and stick the URL between [ img ] tags:
